Call for Nominations: 2020 Barrick Scholar Awards

The Division of Research and Economic Development is pleased to accept nominations for the 2020 Barrick Scholar Awards. Nominations, including the completed application packet and materials supporting the nomination, are invited through Dec. 9 at 5 p.m.

The Barrick Scholar Awards are designed to recognize faculty members who have established a record of distinguished research or have demonstrated excellence in the area of creative activity. These awards are funded by an endowment from the late Marjorie Barrick and are made following recommendations of a committee of former recipients. The provost’s office selects the final honorees.

These awards are based principally on the quality and quantity of research publication or creative activity, which is judged to be extraordinary and distinguished. Only full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty who have completed at least three years of full-time employment at UNLV prior to the application deadline are eligible for these awards. Candidates must be nominated by an NSHE employee.

The Barrick Scholar Award is awarded to faculty members with fewer than 10 years of service in an academic environment after the terminal degree. The award consists of a $2,500 stipend to be presented at the annual campus recognition ceremony

The Barrick Distinguished Scholar Award is awarded to faculty members with 10 years of service or more in an academic environment after the terminal degree. The award consists of a $5,000 stipend to be presented at the annual campus recognition ceremony.

More award information and application guidelines are available online.
